And Still I Rise

“They tried to bury us. But they didn’t know that we were seeds” I met an American girl in Mexico. We stayed in contact during the last year, Messaging each other about different topics. But mainly about the situation in the US and with both of us being black and having different things to say…

Men

“What type of men do you like?” “I don’t know. I like wine.”

Dear 15 years old me…

I wish I could change the path you are walking on right now, wish I could tell you what to avoid and what not, but like I understood time traveling from watching too much science fiction series and movies, I know that if I could and did, I would change my own present and I…

The Life of the Party

I make friends easily. When I want to. I can be the nicest person you have ever met. When I want to. You call fall in love me. When I want to. I bring people to laugh. When I want to. But mostly I don’t want to. People disappoint. People betray and out of my…

Nothing

I want everything and nothing. I want to explore the world but stay within my 4 walls. I want to jump off from cliffs but walk safely on the ground. I want to drown in my dreams and stay awake to see the beauty around me. I want to live forever to find answers but…

When I was younger…

When I was younger, I was bullied quite a lot, because of the color of my skin. That resulted in me not understanding the world and not truly comprehending the law of action. Every action calls for a reaction. My reaction was to try hurting the people who hurt me as much as they did…
